As reported last week, state Senator Don Balfour (R-9) intends to introduce a floor amendment to Senate Bill 350 which could come up for a vote on the Senate floor this week. This amendment would allow transportation and storage of firearms in locked personal vehicles while on publicly-accessible parking lots.
The Georgia Chamber of Commerce released an alert opposing Senator Balfour’s amendment and is encouraging others to oppose it as well. Do not allow the Georgia Chamber to infringe on your right to defend yourself!
Employees who carry a firearm for self-defense on their commute and those who go hunting or target shooting, either before or after work, should not be faced with the possibility of losing their jobs because of a workplace policy that deprives them of their Second Amendment rights. This critical amendment would allow employees to safely store firearms in their locked personal vehicle, guaranteeing their fundamental, constitutional rights and removing the fear of being fired.
Don’t allow the Georgia Chamber of Commerce to be the reason you’re denied self-defense to and from your place of work. Please call AND e-mail your state Senator TODAY and respectfully urge him or her to support the Balfour floor amendment to SB 350! Contact information for your state Senator can be found here.
